4 Cozy Plush Disney Rattles to Shake Things Up

A couple weeks away from turning four months, Amani has reached the stage where she attempts to grab things. Whatever she does get her hands on, she holds on tightly and shakes it around. Of course she’s not entirely in control of her actions just yet. Even so, this is the perfect time to introduce a plush rattle. Upon holding one, she’ll find that every time her hand moves, the plush will rattle softly. Her brain will begin to make the connection and thus leads into more and more wonderful discoveries to be made.

Celebrate Baby's First Year with This Memorable Keepsake

This past weekend, we were cleaning out a closet in the nursery when we were hit with an overwhelming case of nostalgia. Putting away old baby clothes and finding things we hadn’t used in months instantly transported us back to when Wyatt was just a few weeks old and so teeny tiny (although he was 8 lbs., 12 oz. at birth). That’s when inspiration struck and my wife decided to create a quilt to remember all his her favorite outfits.

Thus our Outfit Quilt was born.

9 Mickey Mouse Favorites for Baby

Macks has quickly fallen in love with Mickey Mouse. He has a Mickey Mouse toy that is his absolute favorite and keeps him entertained longer than any other toy we have. I’ve even noticed that he will quickly focus his attention on the television if he notices his sisters are watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in the morning.

As a Mickey Mouse fan myself, I am so happy that he’s found the love of the Mouse too. There are so many cute Mickey Mouse themed toys, books, clothes, and more for babies, that I wanted to share some of my favorites.

My Favorite Gift to Give at Baby Showers and Birthdays

There are two gifts that I love to give at baby showers and birthdays — clothes and books. The first is a need (and let’s be honest, shopping for tiny clothes is so much fun!). The second is a gift that I believe has the potential to keep on giving. One of my favorite things to do with my girls is read. We have a “library” (bookshelf) and it isn’t unusual for us to start our mornings and end our days curled up turning the pages of books. My hope is that my girls will always value literature the way they do now — that they will always find beauty in words.

This month, my littlest one will be turning two, and so far we are planning to gift her one toy and a couple of books. I had gotten her a Mickey Mouse shirt too but couldn’t wait to show her. (She asked to put it on immediately.)

Disney has a variety of books that make great gifts and are perfect for your little one’s library. Here are a few that are on my radar:

5 Magical Disney Vanities for Your Little Princess

My niece’s birthday is coming up and it’s a big one–she’s turning two, that magical age where baby turns into a little girl — and she is, of course, as my niece, one of the smartest and imaginative little girls I have ever met.

I love getting her presents, and for her birthday this year, I think there could be nothing more perfect than finding the perfect Disney vanity for her!
